Sounds good. I had a Diablo Trinity for my WK and that was great!

Re: 4WD System works again!

Is there a price to pay with your car, in general, when driving in sand? Personally, I hate the beach, because the stupid sand somehow finds a way into every crack/hole in your body. Is there concern that driving in it will damage the wheel bearings, suspension parts, scratch brake rotors, etc.?

Re: 4WD System works again!

No not really. I think of all the off-roading, sand driving is the least damaging. Never had any problems, or heard of any either and the guys here live in the sand.
It does however get EVERYWHERE. PITA!

Re: 4WD System works again!

Great pics DuneCrawler! I'm envious of all those dunes you have to play with. Have to tread more lightly here, but it's still a lot of fun!



(yes, I take every shameless opportunity to post more pics of my vehicle)

Re: 4WD System works again!

Had the same thing on my GC 2011 5.7 limited in the sands of Dubai, thankfully it happened as i just left the dunes after about 2 hours of bashing. I drove for about 10 mins and the warning was gone. This was back in Oct 2011, got my GC in Feb 2011

Re: 4WD System works again!

Hi Dunecrawler,
I have read with interest you posts regarding this topic and happy to see a resolution in the end.

I have just experienced the exact same problem with my new 2012 GC. On the beach at Moreton Island off the coast of Brisbane, Australia. Heavy sand conditions and 'bing', the SERV 4WD light comes on and I lose the front 2 wheels. Bogged pretty quick.

After getting pulled out and towed for 20 mins, the warning lights all disappeared and 4WD was back in business. Unhooked from towing and ran 4WD for about 20 mins and then the ESC Malfuntion light came on, but stayed engaged in 4WD.

After a night of sitting, tried the beach again, but didn't make it more than a few hundred meters before the SERV 4WD came on again.

My GC is in with Jeep Service for a second time in a week after they said 'nothing wrong with it'. Keen to see if they have any progress or have read posts like this. Wonder why my GC (newer than yours) would not have had this ABS or ESC software updates??

Thanks again for the posts. It gives me hope that I might take my Luxury 4x4 of the year out onto the sand again...

Re: 4WD System works again!

To Surfer Peck.
Have an overland and Moreton bound late November. Concerned that mine will have similar issue. Build date 03/12 diesel.
What dealership is looking at your loss of 4 w/d. I am on the Southside and have done 6500 klm and very pleased with it except for potential loss of 4 w/d when we start using on beach.Interested in outcome
Regards
Strategy
